Three Weeks review of Talking Cock

ED2012 Comedy Review: Richard Herring Talking Cock テや The Second Coming (Avalon Promotions)
Herring (the plastic, anatomically-incorrect version) is all over Edinburgh. On walls, lampposts, on doors and street corners. But there he is silent. He isnテや冲 silent at the Underbelly. In fact he talks at an astonishing rate, barely stopping to breathe while relating his findings about the general publicテや冱 genitals. Never afraid to undermine his meticulously scripted diatribe against judgement and fear with a crowd-pleasing gag or extended dissection of his own material; this is stand-up going above and beyond the call of duty. While itテや冱 impossible to know if there was enlightenment mingled with the audienceテや冱 laughter, at least one thingテや冱 certain: theyテや冤l never look at jelly carefully spooned into a toilet roll the same way again.

Underbelly Bristo Square, 1-26 Aug, 8.15pm.
